Sticky Gochujang-Honey Chicken

Chocolate Frangelico Mousse — a Christmas Peek from Cork and Knife

Chocolate frangelico mousse is our favorite way to treat our holiday dinner party guests. Light, fluffy chocolate mousse, flavored with nutty Frangelico liquor, and topped with whipped cream, toasted hazelnuts and chocolate flakes? It must be Christmas.

Tofu and Charred Broccoli Bowls with Kimchi–Miso Dressing

Cork and Knife

Our new cookbook is out now — and its focus is one of our favorite ingredients: booze! We show you how to use the cooking properties of beer, wine, bourbon and more to make your dishes pop!

Charred Broccoli and Tofu Bowl

Our version of a Buddha Bowl showcases two main ingredients — charred broccoli and spicy baked tofu. For crunch we add shredded carrots and red cabbage, then we top it off with the creamiest vegan kimchi–miso dressing. Add rice or your favorite grain and dinner is done! 

We’ve never claimed to be on the cutting edge of any particular food trends. In fact, the trendier something is, the more we tend to side-eye it, like a goth kid at a unicorn-themed prom. But you know what? Sometimes dishes we love just happen to also be eminently hashtaggable. That’s the case with this bowl of charred broccoli and spicy baked tofu. It’s topped with a vegan miso-kimchi dressing so luscious, we want to drizzle it on just about everything we make. So go ahead and call this a Buddha Bowl, a Grain Bowl or a Rice Bowl; it doesn’t matter when dinner is this delicious.
